e also urged the graduands to break the school of thought that seeks to ascribe research as a m
ainly science reserve. “We need more researchers in the field of humanities and social sciences. Do not feel too proud to start humbly: take on the responsibility of a Research Assistant to support Senior Researchers when they are doing their work. Through their guidance and mentorship, you will soon gain sufficient footing to stand on your own as a prolific researcher.”
